Differences in Men and Women When Financial Decision-Making

Unknown-5Psychology professor Paul Greenberg purports that financial decision-making is influenced by gender differences.  Wealth psychology specialist Kathleen Burns Kingsbury brings together gender-related findings from various studies and reports that generally, men measure success in terms of beating a benchmark, while women measure success in terms of meeting their life goals and objectives.  Several physical differences in the brain tend to make women more focused on caregiving, passing legacies on to the next generation, and using wealth to improve the community.
